The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is facilitated by a Board of Directors who act as catalysts for economic development in downtown Monroe. The Mayor and City Council appoint Board members. The Downtown Development Authority Board members serve in a leadership role on new improvement projects and programs within the DDA boundaries, and they raise money from the community for downtown events and revitalization efforts.

The Downtown Development Authority Board meets on the second Thursday of each month at 8:00 am in the Council Chambers at City Hall. The public is welcome at all meetings and is invited to come and hear  about the exciting projects that the DDA is working on.
